About Us

Kerry Hargreaves

Hi, I’m Kerry Hargreaves, and I lead the team here at the Book Balancer, providing bookkeeping services for Brisbane businesses since 2010. I adore colour, love to travel, and have a passion for beautiful shoes. In fact, my favourite shoe shop is just opposite the Trevi Fountain in Rome.

Before becoming a bookkeeper, I spent 20 years in the teaching profession. I love to share my knowledge and experience with others, and enjoy training people how to use Xero, and how to read their business financials. So if all you need is some Xero training for you and/or your team, that’s great! I’m happy to help.

The Book Balancer Team

Honesty, integrity and transparency are guiding values for me, and I like to work with businesses that share these values. My team and I operate with a high level of accuracy, efficiency and professionalism at all times. You’ll never find us cooking the books!

Business growth to-date has been through referrals from current clients, demonstrating the high quality of service that we provide.


For the last 7 years Kerry has been our bookkeeper working with both our businesses in the construction and printing industry. We have been extremely impressed with her efficiency, knowledge and ability to problem solve. Kerry has integrated seamlessly into our world of accounts and almost feels like part of our team. We have relied on her advice through some difficult situations where she has gone above and beyond and have been able to trust her to keep us up to date with legislation and best practice. We look forward to many more years ahead with all our accounts and books in order.

Kerry has been my bookkeeper for years, and I couldn’t be without her.

Her knowledge and experience is amazing, and she is always there as a sounding board for any of my business ideas and challenges.

I used to do all of my own bookkeeping at one time, but now I’m very happy I handed it over to Kerry. Everything is done in an efficient and timely manner, and it’s a weight off my mind not to have to worry about bookkeeping any more.

Highly recommend The Book Balancer!
